Last year MPI launched its partnership with the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences to participate in Academy Gold, a seven-week entertainment industry-wide internship enhancement and mentorship program that gives our interns access to special panels with Academy members, screenings, and countless career advancement opportunities. 

June marked the beginning of this summer’s program with two MPI interns participating. Former MPI intern and 2018 Academy Gold alum Carly Hicks gave us an idea of what they can expect out of this summer:

“MPI’s partnership with the Academy Gold program placed me in the very center of the film industry—from panels of filmmakers, tours of studios, and one-on-one mentorship with an industry veteran and Academy member. The Gold program gave me an inside look at the moving pieces that come together to make the movies and TV we love.”
